Do we need ritual? Yes...until we do not.
Do we need rules of religion?...yes, until we do not.
Do we need structure?...Yes, until we do not.
Do we need discipline?.. Yes, until we do not.
Do we need attachments?...Yes, until we do not
Do we need miracles?...Yes, until we do not.
As we realize that all is within, all is one, all is God, all is the Self, these things that we see as important to our life and growth are just tools and steps through our darkness of ignorance, their importance fades into the fog of the unnecessary and this is now our miracle. As we (re)connect to that which is truly important to our journey, we see, feel and practice love. Unconditional love. Love of what we truly are, love of what is the true giving of that love to the world around us and we see that love means to not require the afore mentioned things, we now know what is true to our existence and here, this is miracle. As we reconnect to what we truly are and are meant to share we find one ritual, one rule, one structure, one discipline, one attachment, one miracle and that one thing is LOVE.
Jane Hirshfield: "A tree lives on its roots. If you change the root, you change the tree. Culture lives in human beings. If you change the human heart the culture will follow."
Be your own change, be your new roots, be your own new tree, “be the change you want to see in the world.”Mahatma Gandhi
